    I parked at the parking place at Malga Ciauta and when I passed the house, I was attacked by a dog. The woman from Malga was just standing there, did nothing to prevent attack, moreover, she was shouting and yelling at me, because I was trying to defend from the dog and said I should go wherever I came from.

    I advice to avoid that Malga at all costs.

      It is a shame such people exist. I also had a bad experience with a local, long ago in Norway.

      But thank you for the warning!
